    Sustainability is not a spectator sport; we all have a role to play

    Sustainability is not a spectator sport; we all have a role to play

    Extreme weather conditions are occurring more often all around the world, from wildfires in the U.S. and Australia to severe flooding in parts of Africa and Asia. As a society, we are facing a global crisis: Over 1.2 billion people could be displaced from their homes by 2050 due to the effects of climate change.
    Urgent action is needed to combat the immense challenges we face. Recent pledges by big banks including Citi, J.P.Morgan, and Bank of America to support sustainable finance and help accelerate transition to low-carbon economy is a great start. 
    In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley chat with Matthew Sekol, US Market Executive, Capital Markets, of Microsoft, on the key topics of our century, from ESG to the digital divide and the ethics around artificial intelligence.
    There is hope, but only if we act together — now.
    As we observe Earth Day, we have no other choice. We don’t have a second chance.

    Automating the money movement and why it matters

    Automating the money movement and why it matters

    While few would disagree that financial inclusion is an inequality in our modern day society that still needs to be resolved, and that improving economic prosperity of everyday people is an attainable goal that we should all aspire to - we might not always agree on the path to get there. If we have learned anything from the fintech boom, it’s that having access by itself isn’t enough. Perhaps part of the puzzle piece lies with the movement of money, and how we can best leverage technology to automate our decision making.
    In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley chat with Chris Hutchins, Head of Autonomous Financial Planning at Wealthfront, on self-driving money, and what’s next for democratization of financial services.

    Turning conversations into actions from diversity to customer centricity

    Turning conversations into actions from diversity to customer centricity

    Can we turn conversations into actions? Can we put consumers in the heart of everything we design in this new digital era? With 1 billion people still lacking access to technology, how can we be more thoughtful in creating alternative solutions to achieve equal outcomes for those on the other side of the digital divide? While we might feel every day is like Groundhog day, as our guest reminds us, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Join us in this episode of One Vision, where Theo and Bradley chat with Dr Louise Maynard-Atem on data, privacy, and inclusion.

    The principle lessons of Beyond Good

    The principle lessons of Beyond Good

    The global pandemic may be a wake up call to a new age, one where the value of our work and the leadership we can provide is reflected back to the improvement to the community to which we belong. One way we can succeed in building a very different future — one much more equitable — is to appreciate how interdependent we really are, how everything in our life is a series of connected systems, both big and small. And that it is within our grasp to bend their functions toward a better way. Join us this week as Theo and Bradley talk about the global launch of their new book, Beyond Good.

    How do we build a bank that actually resonates? Let us be brilliant

    How do we build a bank that actually resonates? Let us be brilliant

    How do you build something that delights customers? Conventional wisdom would say that we need to talk to the customers and better understand their needs. But let’s be honest. Beyond the endless surveys, when was the last time your bank actually talks to you, the customer? In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley talk to Billie Simmons, co-founder of Daylight. To Billie’s point, LGBTQ is not just a marketing segment. It is also a community with unique needs that incumbent financial institutions have largely failed to address. It’s about time we change that.
